Financial advice – Decoding the code, competence, disclosure and exploring good customer outcomes:
23 October 2020 | 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

The new financial advice regime in the Financial Services Legislation Amendment Act (FSLAA) comes into force on 15 March 2021. This workshop is a great opportunity before the new rules come into effect within the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 (FMCA) to ensure you are prepared, or to understand why this is a big deal. The workshop will also consider the impact of the Financial Markets (Conduct of Institutions) Amendment Bill (CoFI) on financial institutions (banks, insurers and non-bank deposit takers) and their intermediaries.

  • Summary of FSLAA and how it fits into the FMCA
  • Key duties for financial advice providers (FAPs)
  • Breaking down the Code of Professional Conduct for Financial Advice Services – understanding the standards for ethical behaviour, conduct, client care, competence, knowledge and skill
  • Working with the new and more flexible disclosure regulations
  • Good conduct in financial advice, vs “no advice” models
  • Discussing changes to incentives and commissions
  • CoFI and the new licensing regime for financial institutions
